NP, WR 2/22A/1861

From the Winchester (Va.) Republican

Loudoun & Hampshire R. R.
   The work on the extension of the Alexandria, Loudoun & Hampshire Railroad, beyond Leesburg, is progressing. The village of Mercer, about seven miles beyond Leesburg, is the point to which the labors of the Company extend at present, which is expected to be in readiness for the cars by the first of June.
   Great credit is due the President and directors of this road, for the great energy and skill displayed by them, in the management of tis affairs. Frederick and the adjoining counties are largely interested in its speedy completion. It will be an additional cord to bind the East and West.
